In July 2012, Nate Newman was diagnosed with a brain tumor and it goes without saying his life changed dramatically. While he has undergone many treatments and surgeries, his treatments continue today. The treatment schedule keeps Newman away from school, so is no longer a Chaminade student, but he is still a big part of the family.
You may have seen Newman recently, sitting on the bench as an assistant coach for the Chaminade Boys’ Varsity Basketball team. Head Coach, Todd Wolfson invited him to join the staff after Newman tweeted about how he thought he’d be in high school playing basketball.
Last night, Leanne Suter of ABC7 Eyewitness News stopped by Chaminade’s high school campus in West Hills to interview Newman and share his inspiring story. Watch the video here.
